Shu Lea Cheang & Mark Amerika exhibition at Furtherfield.
It opens Saturday 31 August 2013, 2-5pm
Duration of show - from 31 Aug - 20 Oct 2013
This exhibition by Mark Amerika (US) and Shu Lea Cheang (TW/US/FR) at
Furtherfield Gallery marks a significant moment for contemporary art.
Amerika and Cheang are both 'net native' artists. They share many of the
obsessions of the growing multitude of artists who have grown up with
the net since the early 1990s.
They are also big "names"- internationally established artists who
regularly show their work, to critical acclaim, at contemporary art
galleries around the world. They have crossed over into the mainstream
art world whilst maintaining a critical edge.
Amerika is a media artist, novelist, and theorist of Internet and remix
culture, named a "Time Magazine 100 Innovator" in their continuing
series of features on the most influential artists, scientists,
entertainers and philosophers into the 21st Century. http://markamerika.com/
Cheang is a multi-media artist who works with net-based installation,
social interface and film production. She has been a member of the Paper
Tiger Television collective since 1981 and 'Brandon' about gender fusion
and the techno-body was early web based artwork commissioned by the
Guggenheim Museum (NY). http://www.mauvaiscontact.info/
Both artists continue to shape and be shaped by contemporary networked
media art cultures of remix, glitch, social and environmental encounters.
